catgurl " I'm not a hottie whatsoever in my mind but recently I've been notcing more male attention."
What causes attention by others can sometimes be unpredictable.
For example recently I was riding on the bus and the bus was fairly crowded, but there were several empty seats left. I had my backpack taking up the seat next to me. This strikingly beautiful young woman gets on the bus. She must be about 25, by the way -- not no teenager. And I am not looking at her or paying any attention to her whatsoever. I notice several male heads, and female heads too, turn to look at her, but mine is not among them. She gets on, I look once at what is going on, and then I forget about it. I don't have any reason to think she won't easily find an empty seat somewhere, or any reason to continue looking at her.
Next thing I know, she is standing right next to the seat with my backpack on it, and staring alternately at me, and at my backpack. I assure you, I'm not a hottie whatsoever in my mind. So why did she want that seat if she could have sat next to one of several other men or women? I have no idea. Maybe precisely because I ignored her, and didn't even have the courtesy to pick up my backpack, when she walked by. Only after she stood there for about a full minute, ogling me, and alternately, my backpack, did I get the hint, and pick up my backpack and put it on my lap. Yes, she just wanted the seat -- but there were a bunch of completely empty seats. Why she didn't want to take one of the empty seats, I don't know. Where the men in the next seats ogling her? I don't know. Maybe because getting my seat with my backpack on it, was a challenge, while getting a seat to one of the other men on the bus would have been real easy.
